I will be teaching a Blender class in January and I have downloaded the latest version of Blender. I am going through the BlenderBasics_4thEdition2011.pdf that I've chosen to use as a text. I'm creating a text file that is a record of my progress through that book. Now I've gotten to the camera setup procedure and I can not see a representation of a camera in my scene, so I expanded the transform menu, exposing an auxiliary panel. Atop this panel is a Scene Tree diagram that shows all of the elements in the scene. I found that you could right-click on the Camera listed there and choose the Select option that appears atop the choices. Then with the Camera selected first, I could hold down Shift and RMB on the Empty. The text says that both objects will be highlighted - though I can't verify that because I cannot see the camera. I did press Ctrl+T to add a "Track To Constraint" but the next thing the book says to do is move the camera and I can't see it to move it.
To get around the problem I started a new file and was able to move the camera that came with the standard scene. Is there a way to show the Camera Icon that I am not aware of?
Alt+H, Thanks very much!
